Prerequisites

The prerequisite(s) for this Teaching Unit (Unité d’enseignement – UE) for the programmes/courses that offer this Teaching Unit are specified at the end of this sheet.
Main themes
See part 'Content' hereunder.
Aims
 At the end of this learning unit, the student is able to : 1 With respect to the program's AA reference system, this course contributes to the development, acquisition and evaluation of the following learning outcomes: AA1.1, AA1.2, AA1.3, AA3.1, AA5.3, AA5.4 More specifically, at the end of this course, the student must have acquired a theoretical and practical knowledge of methods for calculating and designing structural elements in reinforced concrete. He/she should be able to design and calculate simple elements in reinforced concrete (beams, columns, ...) by respecting the rules prescribed in the European standards in force (Eurocode 2) and to understand reinforcement and formwork plans. He will also master the fundamental concepts of the theory of reinforced concrete that will allow him to address problems of designing more complex elements (slabs, shells, etc.).
Content
Topics are discussed in the context of calculations in service (elastic behavior hypothesis) and rupture (plastic behavior hypothesis). The design methods presented refer to the rules prescribed in the current European standards (Eurocode 2).
History of reinforced concrete
Mechanical and physical properties of concrete
Mechanical and physical properties of reinforcement steel
Basic principles of calculation of reinforced concrete structures
Structural safety and limit states
Fundamental principles of bending calculation
Behavior of a beam led to rupture by simple bending
Elastic calculation and calculation at break of the sections subjected to the simple bending.
Section subjected to a simple compression
Sections subjected to the composite bending, elastic design and plastic design.
Sections subjected to shear force
Sections subject to torsion
Shear forces at interfaces between 2 concrete zones
Punching slabs
Slender elements subjected to compression (buckling)
Serviceability limit states: limitation of the stresses in service, limitation of the cracking, arrows.
Plastic calculations by means of tie-rods
Technological aspects of reinforcement of reinforced concrete elements
